Cheech And Chong’s Nice Dreams

The Martian slept

it would take part

in Montezuma’s Revenge.

The Martian dreamt
beautiful dreams---

for the moons of Mars
always have that effect

even on non-Martians.
The hum

of the ship motors
was loud

in the cargo hold.
The darkness and cold

exchanged molecules
like wedding vows.

The Martian stirred
and unstirred.

Earth’s moon
almost head-on.

The S.S. Gloria Anzaldua
rattles imperceptibly

as it slows down
into solid space.
